African American Ministers Endorse Hillary Clinton For President!

Reader, below are the names of  28 African American faith leaders from across the country who earlier this week endorsed Hillary Clinton for president. The leaders citing her experience, long commitment to and understanding of the key issues their congregations are facing, and inequalities facing the African American community. On Wednesday, Clinton met with faith leaders and discussed economic disparities, the Flint water crisis and environmental justice, women’s health, equal pay, education, criminal justice, and how they can partner in tackling these issues.

  1. Nice to know they are endorsing a candidate, while at the same time (I hate to break the bad news) making it easy for the IRS to charge them with a tax code violation.


    To be tax-exempt under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code, an organization must be organized and operated exclusively for exempt purposes set forth in section 501(c)(3), and none of its earnings may inure to any private shareholder or individual. In addition, it may not be an action organization, i.e., it may not attempt to influence legislation as a substantial part of its activities and it may not participate in any campaign activity FOR OR AGAINST ANY POLITICAL CANDIDATE.

    1. They as in individuals are endorsing Hillary not their organization. Get it right now!

    2. I'm sure they will make a profit for this by the Clintons #BERNIE2016

    3. Somebody tell the pastors who have been endorsing Marco Rubio or Ted Cruz or Donald Trump. This is intimidation simple and plain.

  2. Want to shut down EVERY Church, Temple, Synagogue, Congregation, Cathedral, Mission and community organization in America?

  3. I personally don't want to shut them down.
    That's the IRS's business.

    But if they're going to endorse someone for political office they should pay taxes.

    And if pastors are men of integrity they would obey the laws of the land. And not blatantly disregard the tax laws just because the IRS isn't enforcing them.

    1. Why are you saying this? There are pastors endorsing Republican candidates far and wide and I bet you could care less about that. Thanks for your opinion but it's worthless except as cheap intimidation. Ted Cruz is bragging on his website he has hundreds of pastors and faith leaders endorsing him. I guess nobody is trying to intimidate him or his endorsers.

  4. <>

    And you honestly don't think they won't tell their "flock" to do the support her as well? Despite the fact that Hillary was getting monet from the private prison industry? Please, these people are classis house negro pastors.

  5. Hilary is pro LGBT rights and equality. I as a pastor cant support this type of candidate.

  6. The IRS does not prohibit members of the clergy from endorsing political candidates in their *INDIVIDUAL* capacity, i.e., not in an official church publication or at an official church event. (It's called free speech, folks.) The IRS has published a "Guide for Churches and Religious Organizations," so rest assured that Hillary's campaign lawyers (and the Yale Law educated candidate herself) know what's permitted in terms of endorsements from members of the clergy.

    IRS guidance provides, in part: “The political campaign activity prohibition isn’t intended to restrict free expression on political matters by leaders of churches or religious organizations speaking for themselves, as individuals. … However, for their organizations to remain tax exempt under IRC Section 501(c)(3), religious leaders can’t make partisan comments in official organization publications or at official church functions. To avoid potential attribution of their comments outside of church functions and publications, religious leaders who speak or write in their individual capacity are encouraged to clearly indicate that their comments are personal and not intended to represent the views of the organization.”

    Enough with the pseudo-lawyering.

  7. How many evangelicals have endorsed candidates? How many pastors have Republican candidates sought endorsements from? Quite alot

    Every day I see on the news pastors endorsing candidates - but they're white so I suppose they don't get threats by the IRS or someone threatening them.
